Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 1st day of June, 2018.

First day of June.

June showers bring July flowers.

We are having a nice rain shower at this very moment.

It has been raining since we first got out of bed.

The trees and grass are now glorious shades of green and the flowers are looking amazing.

It is a bit on the cool side in the house these past few mornings but the “summer” heat will return soon enough.

Alvin is back on the blue blanket once again.

It has become a routine.

He has always liked to be right close to me.

Definitely a Momma’s Boy, for sure.

…………………………………………………….

June 1st, last year.  I always like to check out what was going on.

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 1st day of June, 2017.

The skies are overcast and the wind is blowing here in Edmonton.

It is a refreshing morning.

Alvin and I both had an off night and were up and down but at the end of it all are okay.

Not sure what hit us …..

But not serious ….. might have just been heat and humidity.

I am running late as I semi slept in so I will just share a cute story from my bus ride home last night.

There always seems to be something happening on the bus so I am just start riding regularly about those experiences.

BUS RIDE STORY:

Tonight on the bus ride home – there was a Mom and three small children.

The older boy who was likely six asked his Mom this question:

“Who controls the rain GOD or SATAN?

Best question ever.

I had to smile to myself.

It definitely made the stuffed into the bus like sardine trip easier to take. STILL SMILING……

By the way I did not hear what the Mother replied.

…………………………………………………..

I will always love that Bus Ride Story and just had to share it once again.

Well time for me to go.

Guess June 1st carries forward some aspects from year to year.

I am running just a tad late same as last year.

Time to go.

Have an awesome day.

Remember to LISTEN as you never know what you will hear.

The Bus Story still brings a smile to my face.

Children are the best.

Okay, sorry Mr. Alvin ….. second best.

Smiling away as I key these words.

 

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who bring a smile to our faces everyday.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 23rd day of March, 2017.

So grateful that last night the temperature was perfect, no wind and we had the best walk in a long time.

Yes, spring is here.

Alvin was loving the time outside.

I noticed that instead of jumping over some puddles he ran right through the puddles with his head held high.

It was a deliberate action.

He was telling me that the towel in his basket at the front entrance is there for a reason and will be used tonight.

I figured what the hay.

He reminded me of a small boy standing in the mud puddles and jumping up and down.

We did enjoy our walk.

I am so happy for us that the weather is changing and there will be no ice to keep us from walking.

 

NOTE to ALL:  if you have a dog or a small child always keep a towel at each entrance, just in case.

Mud puddles are meant to be enjoyed.

 

I could/should take a lesson from Mr. Alvin ……

Guess I could use some rubber boots …

 

Well here we are once again ….. time to don the outerwear and hit the trail for the bus.

I am so grateful that most of the ice has melted making my walk to the bus so much more enjoyable.

 

HAPPY Thursday to YOU ALL.

 

Special Hello to: my friends in Regina …… each and every one.

Always, Carol and Alvin
